Tabqa – The Department of Livestock in the Directorate of Agriculture in Tabqa implements a project to breed fish in the Lake of Euphrates Dam.
More than a month ago, the Department worked on the cleaning and maintenance of three-basins and their processing, as well as floating cages that are used for breeding and are placed in special cages where small fish are separated from the big ones and cared for.
“The project of fish breeding in the water of the Euphrates Dam started, and kinds of fish were selected for breeding in basins with a production capacity of 80 tons of fish, Surplus will be exported to other regions, the project Manager of the Directorate of Agriculture in Tabqa Abdullah Khalaf said.
The project aims to preserve fish wealth and increase production, as well as the economic benefit that is used to support and develop fisheries and other projects.
It should be noted that the project of breeding fish in Tabqa was put forward last year by the Directorate of Agriculture in the Committee on Economics, but stopped because of the lack of the necessary materials to implement it.
